Forum: etree Subject: http uploader failing

Yesterday I tried the LMA http uploader for the 1st time. 11 file successfully uploaded, and then I started getting "server I/O error" messages. Repeated attempts to upload the failing files failed the same way.
I waited a few hours and tried again, but now I don't even get the file dialog box, just the spinning icon after clicking the Share button. Same problem today.
Is there a way to access the old LMA FTP upload method?

I don't think this has anything to do with the HTTP uploader... sounds more like system-level problems on the server you were uploading to. Have you had success trying again?

On another PC I was able to upload a show successfully, but when I tried to upload another show by clicking on the Share button I got a dialog box stating "Internet Archive Editor requires cookies. Are cookies turned off?". I have been overriding the default cookie handling to block third-party cookies in IE 6, so I stopped doing this in the Internet options control panel, restarted IE, and was able to get the file open dialog box when I click on the Share button.

I did the same on my main PC, but still couldn't get the file open dialog box, and didn't get the above message. I have shockwave installed on this PC but not the other, so I downloaded the latest version. I also disabled IE plug-ins that I wasn't using, and removed unknown browser helper objects. One of these actions fixed the problem on my main PC.
